From an installer CD? Treat the flash drive as just another hard drive.

Install Fedora from Windows

Image Run the wizard - Once you have your Fedora ISO and have copied and installed the Fedora Live USB Creator, run the program and you'll see this.

Image Select your ISO - If you already downloaded your Live CD, click Browse and choose it in the file selector. If you want to download Fedora now, just choose your version - note that only Fedora 9 and above support persistent storage.

Image Allocate space - Unless you have a tiny USB stick, drag the Persistent Storage slider all the way to the right to allocate 2GB for your documents and settings.

Image Sit back and wait - Now sit back and wait while the Live image is unpacked to your USB stick and the overlay storage is created. This should take no more than 10 minutes.

Image Bootloader installed - Once it has finished configuring the bootloader, the Live USB Creator prints a simple "Complete!" message and you're done - now close the window.

Image Ignore the errors - In each of our tests, we received a message about there being errors during the installation, and yet everything was fine. Just click on OK to skip this message.
